Proposed Project

Evaluation of the Action Plan for the National Public Health Initiative on Diabetes and Women's Health—New—National Center for Chronic Disease Prevention and Health Promotion (NCCDPHP), Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).

Background and Brief Description

Diabetes can have unique and profound effects on women's lives and health. For instance, diabetes is a more common cause of coronary heart disease among women than men, and the prognosis of heart disease is worse for women with diabetes than men with diabetes. The burden of diabetes for women is also unique because the disease can affect both mothers and their unborn children. It is projected that from 2000 to 2025, women will represent more than half of all cases of diabetes in the United States.

The National Public Health Initiative on Diabetes and Women's Health (“The Initiative”) was established to provide support and resources for the creation and implementation of a national public health Action Plan. The Initiative is co-sponsored by the American Diabetes Association (ADA), the American Association of Diabetes Educators (AADE), the American Public Health Association (APHA), the Association of State and Territorial Health Officials (ASTHO), and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).

The Initiative's Action Plan identifies gaps in diabetes-related research and programmatic activities, and strategic objectives, within the areas of community health, diabetes state programs, education and community outreach, quality of care, research, and surveillance.

CDC proposes to conduct a survey to assess collective progress toward achieving the objectives outlined in the Action Plan. The survey will also request information about the specific strategies, steps, resources and partnerships that have been employed to meet the objectives. Respondents will be the 4 co-sponsors of The Initiative, 20 CDC-funded, state-based diabetes prevention and control programs (DPCPs), and approximately 100 private-sector public health organizations with a focus on diabetes and/or women's health. Survey responses will be compiled into a progress report and disseminated to respondents, allowing them to learn about each other's activities and the steps needed to replicate successful diabetes prevention and control efforts.

Information will be collected once per year for a period of 3 years, and the progress report will be updated annually to reflect recent activities and progress. Private-sector partners and state-based partners will submit one survey response per organization per year. Co-sponsors will receive a modified version of the survey. Due to the size and complexity of the activities managed by co-sponsors, the co-sponsoring organizations will have the option of submitting multiple survey responses from different areas of the organization, in order to capture the full range of activities conducted. It is estimated that each co-sponsor will submit an average of three responses. Participation in the survey is voluntary.

Information will be collected electronically through a web-based survey tool. There are no costs to respondents other than their time. The total estimated annualized burden hours are 66.
